from us in advance (which is usually less expensive).

Rather than waiting until there is a problem that may interrupt business operations we are proactive in preventing problems.
We achieve this by regular monitoring, tuning and fault rectification.
We can provide on-site support where necessary. Many of our customers enjoy rapid response via our remote support.
We can provide remote response using a VPN and PC Anywhere, Remote Desktop or SQL Server Enterprise Manager.

we will get to know your site setup and configuration and understand your specific requirements.
We have standard procedures for reporting, documenting and escalating support incidents. You will be able to track the
progress of support incidents using our web-based helpdesk application.
We ask that a full SQL Server health check is carried out before undertaking any support contract.
